AbstractResearches the effects of planting time on the establishment of six native prairie species on roadsides, including Ratibida pinnata. Seedling survival varied by species and by season of planting. Ratibida pinnata seedlings exhibited 95% survival when planted in mid-October compared to 50% survival when planted in March.
